Missing The Small Things

One thing I take some pride in is that I pay attention to and appreciate the small things in life and the small gestures in a relationship.

Today that backfired.

Everytime I leave for work I kiss my sweetheart, who is usually sleeping, goodbye. Today for some reason I missed that little thing for the first time as far as I know. 30 minutes later she texted me “are you angry at me?”.

Which ofcourse I’m not, I just this once missed it 🙁

Happy Halloween!

Time for halloween again. Still don’t get why it’s so popular in sweden all of a sudden, damn americans and your TV shows! 🙂

And for the first time I have a house that needs to adorned for this weekend too. $40 later at Buttericks and it’s all scary. Unfortunately we won’t be home though but it’s the thought that counts, right 🙂 and in 5-6 years I’ll have a kid myself that’s gonna go trick or treating so need to set a good example on our newly built street!

Have fun!! I will!

Big Deal For Me, Not Much For Anyone Else

You may have noticed this site is a bit faster now?.. that’s because I’ve setup a webserver at home that is hosting this site, so you no longer have to go through the states and it doesn’t share the server with NataliePortman.com. So it’s all good for everyone. Except my electric bill 🙂

Here’s To The Joes!

I saw “G.I Joe” the other day. From what I could tell by the trailer it was gonna be one good actionride from start to end. But ofcourse the trailers doesn’t really tell you everything!

Because it was one of the worst movies I’ve ever seen. After about 10 minutes me and my fiance looked at eachother and said “is this a kids movie or for growups”. And after thinking about it, it should be for kids since it’s based on the toys. But did they have to make it THAT childish! Everything is over the top, from the cliches, the characters, the action, everything is amplified just so the kids get it while the grownups are asking “why are we watching this crap??”. After about 50 minutes I wanted to turn it off but she wouldn’t let me and forced me to watch the rest. And the only one plot twist was oh so very predictable! Can’t believe Jonathan Price agreed to this crap! And can’t believe Brendan Frasier agreed to it and was only in it for like 2 minutes!

This kind of movie is why people rather download than spend $20 going to the movies – ’cause you never know what movie is gonna be so bad that you’ll feel ripped off!


The other day I had a terrible revelation – I’m becoming what I hated 15 years ago!!

Wind the clock back to high school. Things sucked bad for me in most ways and like most teens I questioned “why go on?” and if Knut F. hadn’t stepped in I’m not sure I had. Then I happened to see a little movie called “Pump Up The Volume” that really showed me this is what teenage is all about. I totally recognized so much in that movie it was kinda scary. One of the points of the movie is that all parents just want their kids to be normal and go to school, get educated, find a girlfriend and get a job and be normal. Which is really not what the kids wants. And I remember hating all the parents in the movie that told their kids “just be normal”.

Well folks, last week I said “I just hope our son is normal” and it hit me like a blast from a shotgun what I’d just said! Of course in this case I’m more referring to any birth defects or missing toes or something but I do actually just hope our son is normal and goes to school like a normal kid and gets educated, finds a girlfriend and so on. And it sucks that I feel that. Because it’s still very fresh in my mind the fucked up teen years I had when I was anything but normal. But I should take some comfort in the fact that I’m doing ok regardless!

That’s My Boy!
